Book love in the time of COVID-19

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library has new book club kits

If you love reading and enjoy diverse topics, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library has a Book Club Kit for you!

Our ever-expanding Book Club Kit collection currently contains 177 titles including adult fiction, young adult (YA) fiction, mystery, science-fiction, nonfiction, biographies and graphics all available in one handy dandy shoulder bag. Click here to find your next favorite group read.

Book Club Kits can be checked out by one member of the group for six weeks (no renewals) and include 10 books, an information packet that includes discussion questions, author biographies and interviews. Some authors even include music selections to enhance your reading experience.

Are you interested in participating in this year’s Community Read? Book your kit today, we have five for the main selection, I’m Not Dying with you Tonight as well as one for the adult companion title, Just Mercy. Click here to explore the Library’s new Book Club Kit titles.

We understand wanting to exercise caution during these unusual times. If you’re unable to meet in person, there are many titles available in digital formats so your group can read the same title and meet virtually. Explore the following lists:
